4. Document/inventory value drivers: Using Exhibit 113.2 (above) as a guide, the project team should formally document the value-driver inventory. This inventory will feed into the next step. 5. Document and summarize data collection: At this point it is necessary to compile and document the results of the data gathering and stakeholder interviews. This documentation will eventually become a significant part of the metric development workshop brief and a transition into the final metrics development report deliverable. 6. Prepare management presentation: At this point, the project team should have successfully documented their understanding of the enterprise value drivers. Developing Realistic Continuity Planning Process Metrics 1523
7. Obtain management approval/buy-in: To ensure executive management concurrence, the Value Drivers must be reviewed and approved by the management group. 8. Update project plan: Given management feedback, the project plan should be reviewed and changed accordingly. 126.96.36.199 Phase 2: Map Value Drivers to Continuity Planning Process Components † Project Team documents BCP program components: If not already accomplished, the Project Team should document each of the individual components of the organization’s existing continuity planning process (i.e., business impact assessment; risk analysis; program management and oversight; recovery strategy development and implementation; recovery plan development and infrastructure; continuity plan testing, maintenance and training, etc.). † Project team maps value drivers to program components: During this activity, the project team, along with selected stakeholders, endeavors to map identified value drivers to individual or group components of the continuity planning process. Every effort should be made to ensure that each component is related to a specific value driver. If a component cannot be linked to a value driver, then a question may arise as to why the continuity planner implemented it, and retains it going forward. † Project Team drafts value driver/component mapping report: This formal documentation of the value driver/component linkages forms the basis for the metrics development workshop brief that will eventually be reviewed and approved by the stakeholders, and will evolve into the final deployment plan. † Prepare management presentation: Prepare and present value driver/component mapping report to management. This presentation ensures that the management group is kept informed at every milestone, and is necessary to level-set expectations and obtain approvals for next step activities. † Obtain management approval/buy-in: See above. † Update project plan: Management feedback should be reviewed and incorporated into the project plan accordingly.
